Lutz reaches 1,000 in Stanford volleyball win over ASU

Redshirt senior Merete Lutz joined the 1,000 kill club and the Stanford women's volleyball team helped her celebrate with a 25-12, 25-18, 26-24 sweep of visiting Arizona State at Maples Pavilion in a Pac-12 Conference match on Wednesday night.

The second-ranked Cardinal (10-2, 3-0) won its fifth straight as Lutz became the 18th Stanford player since 1986 to reach the thousand mark.

Sophomore Kathryn Plummer led Stanford with 13 kills and the Cardinal hit .432 as a team. Sophomore setter Jenna Gray finished with 36 assists, Tami Alade had a team-high six blocks, and freshman Meghan McClure led the way with five digs.

Lutz hit the milestone in the second set. She also moved into Stanford's all-time top 10 with her 425th career block early in the first set.

The Sun Devils (10-5, 0-3 Pac-12), who finished with a .227 hitting percentage, threatened to extend the match when they tied the third set at 24-24, but back-to-back kills from McClure and Plummer sealed Stanford's seventh straight home win.
